Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 13:4

13:4 Marriage is honourable in, or for all sorts of men, clergy as well as laity: though the Romanists teach otherwise. And the bed undefiled - Consistent with the highest purity; though many spiritual writers, so called, say it is only licensed whoredom. But whoremongers and adulterers God will judge - Though they frequently escape the sentence of men.

Marriage is honarable as institute by GOD,and due for tolarance

 

Marilyn Mathis's comment on 2014-08-27 10:15:40:

In reference to scripture men and women need to be cleansed and delivered from past pornography and sexual acts done in previous relations and only then can they enter into marriage and the bed will be undefiled or pure

FRANCIS SHIKHUYU's comment on 2013-12-27 13:48:45:

couples in marriage should honour their commitment as a symbol of fearing GOD

 

Gloshonne's comment on 2013-11-18 20:47:42:

So many people in today's time don't walk into marriage with the fear of God in mind. If people still knew what it meant to have the fear of God within their hearts, truly putting Him first, and truly lived by His Word, more marriages would have the foundation needed to last.

The scripture gave me strength. Who are we to judge when they faulter. Let the Master do His job.

 

Victoria's comment on 2013-10-02 05:38:12:

Marriage bed undefiled: even before marriage the bed should be undefiled. Purity outside marriage strengthens the marital bond.

It is God word, but does it mean I should divorce the person WHO COMMITTED ADULTRRY WHEN THEY DONT WANT TO GET HELP TO TRY AND SAVE THEIR MARRIAGE

 

Delphine Hypolite's comment on 2011-10-04 11:58:19:

This is what is required in our churches today but even the men of God and elders are scared to preach it because they do not trust in themselves. It is the grace of god, if God says it, He will give the grace to live it. There is so much fornication and adultery in the church these days. This is all because those that should speak and teach it are not confident they won't fall foul of it. God help us. We know it is not by power nor might but we are to obey God and serve Him in spirit and in truth as He has asked of us. God bless you all.

 

Ben Weaver's comment on 2011-01-22 08:40:34:

V.4. Marriage, I think, means a life- long committment, not to be broken. Genesis 24:67 says Isaac brought her into his mother's tent and took her and she became his wife. This was before civil registration was required for a legal marriage. The ceremony was already done with God's direction by the servant who went to bring Rebecca to Isaac. An extended pursuit for the right spouse, with God's guidance, and, I believe, the legal and social procedures of a wedding is propper for our day. Otherwise the enemy may use our emotions to set us up for much misery to follow.
